Ron Gilad was born in Tel Aviv in 1972. In 2001 he moved to New York, running there his studio for 12 years.
Gilad’s hybrid objects combine material with aesthetic play. They sit on the fat, delicious line between the abstract and the functional. His works deal with the relationship between the object and its function, questioning our perceptions. Varying from one-off to limited editions and production pieces, the works have no “expiration date” and reside in both public and private collections worldwide. Gilad asks unceasing questions in 3D form and fabricates answers that create an arena for fertile doubt. Metaphorically, Gilad is a linguist, creating his own language. He learns the origins of “words” and develops “synonyms”. In 2013 he named designer of the year both by Wallpaper and Elle Décor. His designs for the italian industry won numerous awards as well. Ron Gilad designs for Alias tavolo zero tables collection.
Currently he lives and works between Tel Aviv and Milan.
